Product Description

Echo Chernik's second Pairs deck is based on her amazing Goddesses of Cuisine illustrations, ten embodiments of food including Cheese, Coffee, Spice, and many more. These illustrations were originally published as a calendar but we're thrilled to make them into this limited-edition Pairs deck (sorry, months 11 and 12!) The Goddesses of Cuisine deck contains the bonus game The Judge, a cooking game for 3-6 players.

Pairs is a "New Classic Pub Game" featuring an unusual deck of cards. The deck has only the numbers 1 through 10, with a different number of each card: 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, and so on, up to 10x10.

In the basic game, points are bad, and you score points by getting a pair. So, if you have a 10, there are 9 other cards that could pair it up, and you'll get 10 penalty points if you do. Players take turns deciding whether to take another card, or fold, trying to avoid scoring points. When you fold, you have to take points, but only the smallest card in play.

The Judge is a game about a cooking contest. Players "cook" by choosing cards from their hands and playing them face-up into a recipe. Then "The Judge" reveals cards one at a time, rejecting any recipe that contains a matching card. The surviving recipe(s) score the point values of the cards they contain.

Pairs was designed by veteran game inventors James Ernest and Paul Peterson, and released in October 2014. There are many different art decks to choose from, but they all work for the same game (and many variant games!)
